Opened in 1820 in El Raval, Bar Marsella is said to be Barcelona's very first bar and everyone from Picasso to Hemmingway is rumoured to have been a regular at some point in this establishment's long and louche history. Paradoxically, while the grime on the chandeliers thickens, the floor tiles become even tattier and the cobwebs in every corner spread further, Marsella's appeal only seems to grow. Perhaps because the bar's mix of local Bohemians and brave tourists enjoy drinking in the sense of history as much as the venue's famed absinthe.

We recommend to book your stays in Spain in advance as it can get booked up quickly during certain periods. If you use this link, you pay the same price and we get a small commission - thanks for your support!
